TCoHP team Blog 1. My BAD habit.

Tuesday, July 09, 2013

I have found that my bad habit now a days is telling myself I *Just Can't Do It* and believing that I REALLY can't. I have been battling a very deep dark depression for a few months, heck a year now that I just can't seem to break..............but maybe the problem is that I am NOT TRYING to break this habit. I am finding it easier to just take the EASY way out instead of getting up and moving on.................

I have in my signature line the phrase "Never Give Up, Always Get Up" but I am not following my own *motto* right now.

So as of today I am going to begin working on breaking this bad habit with the best of my abilities.

    I have a firm belief that ongoing depression is generally biochemical, at least I know mine is. Over the years, these things have helped:

    got my hypothyroidism under control with medication
    Vit B6 is extremely helpful!
    So is Vit D3, especially for SAD -- so is at least an hour a day in the sunlight
    If the SSRIs don't work (as they don't for me) Wellbutrin may be the answer.
    And exercise. I know that hasn't been possible for you, & maybe that's part of the depression?

    Of course you know no drinking -- alcohol is a depressant. So are cigarettes.

    Love you, & hope you can break through to the sunlight very soon!

    Sometimes motivation is just not there and it can be difficult. I have started on working out ways to self-discipline myself.

    Do I really want this?
    If the answer is yes then you MUST put the effort in; or you are saying 'yes' and doing 'no'

    It is starting to sink in

    It is tough to start moving again after a long period of inactivity for whatever reason. Be gentle with yourself and start with small goals. Maybe just 10 minutes of exercise/activity several days a week. You need to rebuild your strength and stamina. You can do this.

    I was there too, and not too long ago. I just couldn't get the Grims off me until I kept saying - I'm not and act on it.
    You will do this - one step at a time - I know it!
    Hugs and Sparkles

    Nims- I can identify with that! When I was mulling over my blogs for TCoHP and choosing a bad habit to get rid of, I thought about how far I was willing to go. I thought- what I NEED to do is move forward. Let the past go. (The disease, the sickness, the memories...) And I determined I am not ready to let it all go, even if it is bad feelings and memories. I am not ready. *Sigh*

    And hence, I chose something more within reach (Stress reduction) which is a little connected, but it's a broad category and touches many aspects of my life anyway.

    But the difference is, Nims, depression is everyday (mostly), all the time. If it is stopping you from having the rest of your life, you need to get help and move it out. Chances are, if you are normally not a depressed person (and I never saw that in you until recently), once you kick the funk, I bet you'll be ok, and back to yourself.

    I'm here for ya, sister. LYG! Prayers and hugs, and all the emoticon in the world!
